Despair

by Tom Swift

Mama says truth is all that matters
Lying and deceiving is a sin
Drifting through a world that’s torn and tattered
Every thought I have don’t mean a thing

Don’t stop, don’t stop the dance
(No) More music (Don’t stop the dance)

Mama says love is all that matters
Beauty should be deeper than your skin
Living for the moment, lips and lashes
Will I ever find my way again?

Don’t stop, don’t stop the dance
(No) More music (Don’t stop the dance)

Don’t stop, don’t stop the dance

-Bryan Ferry, “Don’t Stop the Dance,” Boys and Girls (1985)
